I dunno what happened to some other folks but I have never had a bad or mediocre meal at this restaurant. Went last night, started with the barbi shrimp & finished with a New York that was tasty, tender and cooked to perfection. Great service & a cold Fosters topped it all off. OB has become a favorite when visiting... More

I have to wonder if Outback is just fading chain-wide or we have had just poor luck in choosing them but, once again, service and food was weak. On our last visit they forgot the appetizer and, really, the steaks were just tough. Also, our son couldn't stomach the apple slices included with his kids meal (apparently they are a... More

We had dinner at the Outback on Virginia St in Reno. Our waiter was very polite but also very slow and had trouble remembering our order. We ordered the special sirloin dinner, both our orders were cooked as ordered but the steak was very tough with a large grizzle through it. The mixed vegetables were excellent as was the house...

This is the 4th time eating at the Outback Steakhouse in Reno, over a period of three years. Each visit has been great. The service is quick and the drinks are bottomless-never once did I see the bottom of my soda. My fiance got the 6 oz sirloin with fries, caesar salad, I got the half rack of ribs with... More

I went there with my mom, the food was very tasty. We had grilled shrimp as appetizer, in which the Smokey flavor adds real outdoor experience. I had a sirloin steak which was nice too. My mom usually doesn't like the food of this kind, but she was pleased with the broiled lobster this time. Price is very low compare... More

Had to go here with local friends that insisted upon it. Predictably uninspiring chain chow, basically a slightly fancy Denny's featuring steak (or at least steak-like things). Service was fine & predictably chipper, but couldn't compensate for the boring food & stenciled decor.

The food was excellent as always, but this particular Outback has above average waitresses, engaging and happy.

Not only is the food terrific, but the service is outstanding. The cheerful staff is well-trained and prompt in attending to your dining needs. The atmosphere is upbeat and comfortable. The grillmaster knows how to cook beef------the filet is delicious-----the way you want it . Try the baked sweet potato for a side it's yummy even without toppings of butter... More

Three of us walked over to the outback from the atlantis. Hostess was very friendly along with the waitress we had. When the food came, 2 of us had to send the steaks back werent quite cooked enough. They returned just right.. We all left quite full.
